MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mary Lydon's essays are unique in their ability to absorb a profound understanding of Derrida, Lacan, Barthes, and other French theorists into the very fabric of her critical readings. In these brilliant essays on Proust and Beckett, on Duras and Duchamp, and on feminist subjects, theory is always at the service of the most sensitive elucidation of difficult material. An original and delightful collection!" Marjorie Perloff, Stanford University
